I have just joined Shotgunworld and have a question about a 410 that I inherited from my Dad. It is a double barrel and the only markings on it are "My Little Pet" and Laminated Barrel Belgium. Several gunsmiths in the area (Indiana) have tried to find info but have not had any results. I also have a L.C. Smith 12 ga that my Dad bought around 1946.I am interested in the value of it.

Here is a thread that might be able to help you with the Belgian gun.

The "My Little Pet", is that in the wood or on the steel?

The LC Smith could be worth $200 - $2000 depending on grade and condition. Either way, it's a quality shotgun.

A "Laminated Steel" barrel is roughly the equivalent of a Damascus barrel. I wouldn't use it unless it is "Nitro Proofed" and the barrel shows NO signs of corrosion!

Belgium used to send in cheap black powder guns by the ton! Most were given an obscure name, and were only proofed with Black Powder!

They were very cheap guns.

I doubt if there is any info on it-Bobk hit the nail on the head with his response---DON'T SHOOT IT---
